iPhone : We are pleased to announce that GGRiP 2021 will be on 22nd and 23rd June (online format). Perfect warm up event to Goldschmidt!

Watch this space for more details on keynotes, abstract submission and registration

iPhone : If, like me, youre feeling a bit overwhelmed by the wealth of information following yesterdays M7.3, M7.4 & M8.1 earthquakes in the South Pacific, then hopefully this summary map helps, which Ive quickly put together.

iPhone : Celebrating #Geology University of Southampton which is now ranked top 50 globally and 8th in the UK. Geophysics, and Earth and Marine Science also placed in the global top 100!

Congratulations to everyone in the School of Ocean and Earth Science #QSWUR 👏

Twitter Web App : Two new research/monitoring jobs to join the Volcanology Team at Te Pū Ao - GNS Science New Zealand, with flexibility in job location (Wellington/Taupo):

Volcano Seismologist - Closes 19 April
Physical Volcanologist - Closes 5th April

Twitter Web App : Great headline - not sure the author recognised the geochemical pun though…

iPhone : Apparently a meteorite came to visit and is now strewn over the Cotswolds. If you think you might have found a bit of it, these seem to be the people to contact.…

iPhone : EOS spot on our use of past climates to constrain climate sensitivity: "the findings exemplify the challenge of using present-day observations to constrain future climate change and highlight the value of information from past episodes of climate change"…

iPhone :…
How long does it take for a plankton gene to spread across the global ocean? It depends on how fast they can adapt... 👇

iPhone : Community similarity in a model ocean. We seeded 94 populations across the ocean, each adapted to their local temperature. Populations can adapt as they disperse, but it is hard to displace abundant locally-adapted types. These selective barriers led to biogeographic structure.

iPhone : Earth science allows us to better understand the world around us, and how people, systems and resources interact. This is vital for addressing major global challenges like climate change. (1/2)

iPhone : Congratulations to Dr. Maria Raja Sánchez and Dr. Antoni Rosell Melé on their new PNAS paper published in January 2021, 'Appraisal of sedimentary #alkenones for the quantitative reconstruction of #phytoplankton biomass'!

iPhone : Introducing new #CoastSnap product, showing time-series of beach width change from your community snaps. Check out an entire year of change at our North Narrabeen station. Incredible what can be done with a piece of stainless steel & an active community! #citizenscience
